Tomorrow's full moon , the Harvest moon, falls on Friday the 13th. The superstition goes that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck. I have read this stems from the thirteen people at the last supper and the crucification on Good Friday. There is also superstition that the full moon makes people act crazy...though with all the craziness in the world it seems hard to tell from my viewpoint. But I do believe the cycles of the moon can assist us in our own cycles.
Perhaps these two phenomenons will have a different effect when together. Perhaps tomorrow will shed light on our fears or superstitions. Perhaps it will be a time to reflect and get clear answers on what follies of the mind hold us back from achieving everything we want. Perhaps we can find new depths to our own light as well as the "disciples" who believe in us.
I'm grateful for light and darkness. I'm grateful to feel a connection to the moon and her beauty. I'm grateful for meditations and moon bathing. I'm grateful to hold hope for a good nights' sleep and time to enjoy this phenomenon tomorrow. I'm grateful for symbolism. I'm grateful to see beauty in my light and in the light reflected around me. I'm grateful for this rare event.
What symbolism speaks to you? What lights your path when darkness creeps in?
May we find beauty in our light and our darkness. May we reach out to those who can help reflect light when our journey gets dark. May we provide light to others as well. Have a beautiful day!
